  •  that depends on who it is, ask Roger Clemens (0+ / 0-)

    who Congress felt wasn't truthful when he testified he had not used steroids.

    The Roger Clemens prosecution debacle has ceased to exist. It's as if the near five-year investigation, near two-year-old indictment, one mistrial for prosecutorial misconduct and near several months long trial never happened. Web analytics shows that his name has been mentioned only a few times in the last few hours, mere days after his not guilty on all counts verdict. I predicted that the government would not add a Roger Clemens notch to its high-profile gun belt. It is time for the government to protect us from the likes of murderers, drug cartels, pedophiles, and bankers-not from a retired jock that may have lied to Congress. This was exactly the sentiment echoed by one of the jurors. Who cares? In a time where not one -- nada, zippo, zilch -- person has been put in jail for the massive bank failure, stop spending taxpayer money on this type of headhunt against a sports figure who is meaningless in the scheme of our individual quality of life. Let Major League Baseball handle steroid use among baseball players.

    Why The DOJ Can’t Prosecute Banksters: Map of Clemens Investigation
    Posted on June 8, 2012  by bmaz

    At a time when there are still no significant prosecutions of major players, banks and investment shops responsible for the financial fraud that nearly toppled the world economy and is still choking the US economy, we get an explanation why from an unlikely source – the Roger Clemens trial in Judge Reggie Walton’s courtroom in the DC District. During defense examination of FBI special agent John Longmire today, a map of the FBI/DOJ investigation of Roger Clemens, who was accused of lying about getting a few steroid shots in the late 90s and early 2000s, was displayed. We are now two full months into the second trial of Roger Clemens stemming from this investigation.

    Any more questions on why DOJ cannot get around to prosecuting banksters?
